Seminar Title: Coding Form Fall2013 – ESTm
Instructor: Satoru Sugihara
This course explores techniques of fast-growing computational design technology and techniques using Grasshopper with various add-ons. Participants should be already familiar with 3D modeling in Rhinoceros. The course provides knowledge and skills of techniques in 2D pattern making, surface panelization and structure modeling with LunchBox add-on, parametric sub-D modeling with Weaverbird add-on, physical simulation with Kangaroo, scripting with Gh-Python add-on, urban geometry manipulation with Elk add-on, robotic hardware control and feedback with Firefly add-on, and network communication with gHowl. Participants learn not only each techniques with specific tools but also understanding of mathematical aspect of geometry and vectors, and logical thinking in parametric design and computational design.
Students: Nikita Alex Troufanov, Oksana Gritcai, Woongyeun Park, Brennen Douglas Huller
